Jailbreakers haven't even been able to blink their eyes lately without some kind of news about exploits or jailbreak updates, and as it seems, there are no signs that this will subside anytime soon.
While the bulk of this news has been about adding support for newer firmware versions using updated and more efficient exploits, and hacker and rootless JB 3.0 developer Jake James shook up a bit this morning when he released updated versions of Sock Port and Sock Port 2 tfp0 Utilities with Support for 64-bit Devices Running iOS 10.0-10.3.3:
From What We Can Collect , these exploits won't work with 32-bit devices like the iPhone 5 and older, but it's still good news because it extends an olive branch to iOS 10 users who may be looking forward to a new prison apart from Luca Todesco's Yalu utility.
Worth noting, main developer Pwn20wnd expresses interest in the exploit shortly after James started teasing it. While this is not a promise, it is an indication of the idea that no one could one day get iOS 10 support and transform it into an even more universal jailbreak tool than it already is:
James has published his updated exploits on GitHub with a full PDF description available here. Below are the release notes:
iOS 10.0-12.2 tfp0 for all devices (in theory).
- Uses socket bug by Ned Williamson
- Uses some stuff by Ian Beer, machswap, SockPuppet
- The rest of the code is licensed under the GPL, unless explicitly authorized to distribute closed source (unc0ver team, pwn20wnd and sbingner, have this permission)

Thanks to Pwn20wnd and GeoSn0w & users to help with multi-device testing (and Corellium).
